An emergency scenario can erupt at any moment. In a situation where another person’s life is in danger, it’s human nature to want to save them, even if it means you’ll get injured in the process. When that happens, you’re protected by the Rescue Doctrine.
The Rescue Doctrine states that when someone else causes a crisis, if you attempt to save a person in danger and receive injuries or die, the person who caused the danger is liable for your injuries or death. Since that person is liable, you can receive compensation for any injuries that you received while voluntarily trying to save another person from serious injury or death.
